Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Eminence Organic Skin Care full-time for more than 5 years Cons: You'll fit in if you're willing to drink the koolaid. Regrettably you'll never find another job after working here as the company business practices are so outdated that it makes the year 2000 look modern. Everyone who works there is REQUIRED to attend the company's DAILY 8am meeting. Grossly inefficient business practices but that's what happens when the majority of the workforce is highly unskilled. Also, the lack of technology present is laughable. I can't think of any successful company that still uses paper-based systems for the majority of things. Hello?? 1970 called and wants their fax machine back!! No parking. But you can take public transit there. You'll just need to wake up extra early so you're never late to the company all hands meeting every day."
Former Employee - Inside Sales Representative says"I worked at Eminence Organic Skin Care full-time for more than a year Cons: Where do I begin. This company is garbage; an absolute joke. Even before I was hired with Eminence as an Inside Sales Rep, I was forwarned that I would encounter incompetancy from HR and management. Management is completely biased and thrives off of sheer favoritism. Over worked, and under valued. Employees under management work super hard to meet targets and deadlines, only to get repremanded day to day. HR is unprofessional and racist. I won't name anyone, but the recruitment team specifically should take a good look at themselves and their ethics. The salary is trash and unliveable for Vancouver. For all the responsibilities that Inside Sales Reps have to deal with, pay us adequately!! Not the bare minimum with the promise of unrealistic "bonuses". Eminence is NOT an equal opportunity employer. Let me also add that having worked there AND used their stuff over a long period of time, I can asure you that Eminence products are in fact NOT organic or natural. Sure, at one point in time in the early 90's they probably were. But capitalism is an evil thing. You are not getting what you think you are paying for with their crap. It's sad because I was really sold that this was the dream job and was sincerely excited, only to be thoroughly let down in every way."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Eminence Organic Skin Care full-time for more than a year Cons: Upper management doesn’t care or show respect to employees unless your a favourite. No room for growth opportunities."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Eminence Organic Skin Care full-time Cons: Lots of favoritism with inexperienced leaders. HR works for the company and not for the employees. Stop working 'by the book' - the team doesn't think HR is a resource for support. Lots of gossip and disengagement. Lack of trust and transparency. They claim to have superb retention but the fact is that people drop off like flies all the time. Most employees joke about the people who keep quitting and it makes Eminence look like a fool when they brag about retention. Rampant disengagement. Titles do not match industry standards and does not match what people do. Base salary is very low and if you talk to management about it, nothing happens. No education for staff or leaders. No flexibility for parents or staff who need flexibility. Benefits are below average. Bonuses are based on non-achievable targets and are not guaranteed. They claim to have organic product but fail to be transparent and are afraid of people (or blogs) who make them accountable. Most of their celebrity endorsements are not found organically and some aren’t even real. They have good product, they shouldn't have to lie. Feedback goes no where. Leaders do not know how to provide feedback. Works in a hierarchy . Deadlock at the top so nothing gets done. Leaders are not trained or have time for their team. Lack of team building. Positive reviews on Glassdoor are written by HR and Senior Management/friends. Sadly we can tell by the writing style. Review on September 20th 2017 is written by the company itself along with other positive reviews. People are dissatisfied, yet all the company can do is write fake reviews on Glassdoor. Working at this company is painful. I'm actively seeking new opportunities . In the last few months over 12 people have resigned and left. That is why we have so many new openings. I recommend not working at Eminence. Lack of growth and development."
says"I worked at Eminence Organic Skin Care Cons: Despite all that, this is the worst company I've ever worked for. I felt compelled to write something after seeing the "review" dated February 20, 2015. I wholeheartedly believe it's a fake review planted by one of the company's senior leaders in order to boost Eminence’s ratings on Glassdoor. Based on the writing style, sentence structure (including incomplete sentences), and continuous use of "...." - I believe I know exactly who that person is. I encourage anyone reading these reviews to dismiss that particular review as a fake. I'm also highly skeptical of the review dated March 8, 2015 and have a suspicion of who wrote that. But, I could be wrong. In all honesty, I have to agree with what others have already written in their negative reviews. There is nothing in those reviews that is untrue, out of context, or an exaggeration. Are you ambitious, good at what you do, and have confidence in yourself? Stay away! Over time, you will be berated, belittled and your confidence slowly chipped away until you are a shell of your former professional self and unsure of any of your talents. I saw this happen to many people. Some left. Some stayed. It’s despicable and outright bullying in some cases. Are you considered an expert in a particular area? Once you come on board, you will not be treated like you are. People who have no experience in your field will tell you how to do your job, even if it goes against your better judgment, and will not be satisfied until they get their way. You will have to resort to fanning some pretty big egos to get any work done. Other than paying for the monthly transit pass (which is a nice perk), the benefits are basic and, in most cases, the legal bare minimum. Yes, there are bonuses. But the base salary plus the bonus is, for the most part, what people make as a base in similar roles at other companies. And how achievable those bonuses are depends on who you ask. It works for some roles in the company and not in others. So, you can’t really call the bonuses a perk. Really, they just want to build a company of “yes” people. So if that’s you, you’ll probably love it. Otherwise, you’ve been warned."
Former Employee - Middle Manager says"I worked at Eminence Organic Skin Care full-time for more than a year Cons: Employees are treated like children. Management seems to be clueless about what is and is not appropriate. The smart people figure out that it's a ridiculous place to work, and leave. There's very little upward mobility. It's owned by two brothers, who are nice enough guys, but if you're not in the family, let's face it, you're just not in the family. Salary is meagre, and benefits are basic Blue Cross (no vision coverage, basic dental and everything else). There are terrible people in higher-up positions. They will yell and berate and make you feel like the stupidest person on the planet. OR, they're your best friend. It really depends on whether or not they took their happy pills."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Eminence Organic Skin Care full-time Cons: Company culture or company cult? This is the most bizarre and unprofessional company I have ever worked for. Every morning starts with an 8 am meeting which is mandatory for the entire office. If you're there at 8:01 a.m. you're considered "late" and may even be written up. It reminded me of the bell to start elementary school in the morning. And, that seems very fitting considering the fact that you will be treated like you're a child if you work at Eminence. The benefits are bare minimum, with only 2 weeks vacation, even at a mid-senior level. There are no top-ups for maternity leave, despite the fact that the office is made up of 95% women. On top of that (as stated above) there is absolutely no room for any flexibility in work schedule. The only people who are valued and have any chance of moving up in the company are the "YES" people - those who will not question anything."
says"I worked at Eminence Organic Skin Care Cons: Unfortunately extremely misleading. Looks like the opportunity of a lifetime on the surface but within months the cracks start to show. Ridiculous amount of unhappy people which creates a negative toxic environment to work in. Lack of growth for those who are looking for something long term. No employee retention whatsoever, people come and go within 1 year. School like mentality, premature promotions go to the under qualified who don't ask questions."
says"I worked at Eminence Organic Skin Care Cons: Unfair territories, no room for growth since company is very small"
Former Employee - Sales Associate says"I worked at Eminence Organic Skin Care full-time for more than a year Cons: Pay and benefits are not the best in the industry to say the least"
